I am passionate about strengthening the bond between owners and their dogs in order to have a great companionship. Using the positive reinforcement techniques I teach, strengthening the bond between you and your canine is inevitable.

I give individual dog training and/or behaviour modification consultations for puppies, adolescent dogs and older dogs, dog walking and/or play services for dogs of all ages and day pet sitting. I work in the Centurion and Pretoria surrounds.

Individual training sessions for dogs older than 13 weeks of age to teach obedience

Examples are teaching your dog(s) to walk properly on the lead or to teach your dog(s) to “stay” on cue or to teach your dog(s) to drop the ball so that you can throw it again or to teach your dog not to jump on you. My basic obedience programme also includes making your dog use to grooming and body handling and being alone. I work solely with positive reinforcement training techniques which includes the use of clicker training. I teach you to use clicker training principles. I come to your home for these individual training sessions and we work also in the environments your dog needs to cope in, for example walking on the street. For puppies between the ages of 8 weeks to 13 weeks, I rather refer you to a reputable puppy school that presents group classes. After you completed such a puppy programme you can approach me to take your basic obedience training further.

Individual, behaviour modification consultations for dogs of all ages that present a behaviour problem.

Examples are if your dog(s) developed a fear of something or barking excessively or chews destructively, resource guards excessively or cannot cope alone etc. to name a few examples. I come to your home for these consultations. I analyse gathered information and work out an appropriate plan of action and guide you through the implementation of it.

Dog walking and play services

If your dog(s) need more walking and stimulation than what you can provide in a week. I will not be teaching your dog(s) to walk properly on the lead when I do walking or teach your dog(s) any obedience when I play with him/her/them, as I strongly believe that the owner needs to be involved in obedience training. I come to your home and take your dog(s) for a walk in your area and/or play with your dog(s) at your home.

I have seen so many times dog owners struggle with their dog’s allergies, the vet bills pile up and their dog needs to be on a highly expensive food, and it does not really work in any case, always need an occasional cortisone as well. The AIM’s pet products can greatly assist with this and have had many success stories. There are also AIM products that can greatly improve your dog’s gut health and help your dog with a fear of thunder and fireworks (in conjunction with behaviour modification). Please check out my AIM store website and contact me for more information.
